Welcome to TACA North Dakota

TACA's North Dakota chapter is one of 29 TACA chapters across the country. TACA ND hosts meetings, events and coffee talks throughout the year. All parents, caregivers and professionals are welcome to attend. TACA hosts educational speakers on important topics and allows parents and caregivers to connect with one another to stay informed on the latest information in the autism world.

TACA North Dakota offers a Lending Library at Meetings. All first time attendees receive TACA's Autism Journey Guide to keep as a resource at no charge.

Parents, Grandparents and Caregivers from throughout the Red River Valley are encouraged to meet up at the next TACA event. Please check back for updates.
